hhhmmmmm good question. I remember a test done in a USA magazine on this. I think from memory the MV had a bout 20hp more. I think it was close but the Ducati just pipped it around the track.
Don't hold me to that, but I sort of remember that being the case.

I honestly wouldnt know for sure but I would have to go with what MVASyd said...the 999R is more track oriented but in a straight line wont be able to hold up to the brute that is the MV.

999R 139bhp

1000S 166 bhp

2004 model year - official figures at crank

someone dyno'd a 2005 999R which gave about 134 bhp at rear wheel

If you can't fix it with a hammer you've got an electrical problem!


No MV's in the garage anymore

134 at the wheel would equate to 150 approx at the engine wont it?

Yes, I don't think that would be far out, but still less than the MV.

The point is not the power output in numbers, but the way that the power comes on the tarmac. That’s the fascination on the Ducatis (I used to have a 999s).
The 999R is a better bike, but for me, based on “how I use the throttle”, the F4R is the ultimate tool.

I don't think anyone would argue that the 999R is the ultimate track /racing machine.

Having said that I watched a delayed telecast of the opening SuperStock round at Donnington park UK. THe MV 312R was leading with one lap to go when was taken out by a falling R1. The Ducati 1098 slipped past for it's first race victory.
So the MV can't be that bad, I guess.
Also a mate just came back from the 2 nd round of our BEARS racing on the weekend and the MVR won all three rounds against a gaggle of 999R's and 996's.
If the track has a decent straight then I would say the MV would be right up there.

Yeah the Agusta has gobs of power so it would obliterate a lot of bikes in a straight line.
